A Summer in Tobago

With my current schedule, sewing has definitely taken a back burner, but when I got offered the chance to test an amazing pattern for an amazing pattern maker, how could I say no? Sis Boom makes some of the best written, best fitting patterns on the PDF market today. With so many instructions for a personalized fit and instructions written so that even beginning seamstresses can make amazing garments, how can you go wrong? I tested the new pattern, the Tobago top or dress. With my limited time, I made the top version. Here is the pattern picture 

The pattern sizing on this is amazing - 3/6 m - 13/14. I tested the 13/14. What is awesome about this pattern is that it fit a wide range of body types. It was flattering on the tall and narrows and on the curvier gals like my tween miss. The Tobago top and dress is currently on sale for $5.00 in Sis Boom's Etsy shop, which with a size range like that is a must buy in my book. You can get it here https://www.etsy.com/listing/196321536/sis-boom-tobago-tank-girls-top-or-dress?ref=sr_gallery_1&ga_search_query=sis+boom+tobago&ga_ship_to=US&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery. And if you just love it and wish YOU could wear it, well let me introduce you to Tortola, Tobago's big sister. Right now, you can only get this through the Road Trip Pattern Club which gives you an adult pattern a month for five months from some amazing designers. Look at Jenny from http://sewprettydresses.blogspot.com/ and her version. She looks just lovely. 


I haven't had a chance to make one up for me yet, but when life settles down some, it is definitely on my selfish sewing list. You can join the Road Trip Pattern Club here and get all of the patterns that have been released and everything else coming out.

Here is our 13/14 tween version of the Tobago top.









An update on my mom:
My mom moved to rehab Friday afternoon. She had been doing really well but had a really bad afternoon/evening yesterday. It is so very hard to go through this. Please keep her in your prayers.
